Indians 4, Royals 3

CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley hit two-run homers, powering the Indians over the Kansas City Royals 4-3 Monday night when a fearless squirrel ran around Progressive Field and provided some extra entertainment.

Kipnis connected in the sixth inning off Jeremy Guthrie (2-1), overcoming a 3-2 deficit. Brantley provided Cleveland a 2-0 lead in the fourth.

The game was momentarily delayed in the second inning when a squirrel ran onto the field. The rodent was directed inside the Royals bullpen by members of the grounds crew, but the slippery rodent escaped and returned for another scamper to the delight of the crowd of 10,789 and hung around for another inning before being shooed into the Indians’ center-field bullpen.

Zach McAllister (3-0) gave up six hits and overcame three errors — one on his errant throw. Marc Rzepczynski and Cody Allen pitched a hitless inning each, and closer John Axford worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his seventh save.

Alex Gordon and Omar Infante each had two of the Royals’ six hits.
